My Favorite Florida Escape: Canoeing Wekiwa Springs
My favorite local escape is canoeing at Wekiwa Springs State Park. Get there early to rent a canoe before it gets crowded. Experience the lush greenery at canoe-level, along with egrets, turtles, herons, and (occasionally) alligators. Later, lounge on a blanket on the grass lawn and then go swimming in the whoa-it's-cold springs. Don't miss out on exploring some of Florida's natural beauty.
Tip: Go on a weekday.
